this and that ....

On Saturday we took in the first of the fall craft shows and it happened to be out of town. Unfortunately, it was more trade than craft.  There was a good turn out but it was so crowded that one could barely walk around so taking photos was out of the question.  The vendors that we spoke to were friendly and that was enjoyable.  When we were finished what else could we do but go to our favourite Chinese restaurant for a delicious lunch! 

Saturday evening our first snowfall of the season arrived  -  just a skiff that collected on the grass.  It's much too early for winter to start so we appreciated that it disappeared on Monday only to return Monday evening, alas ... there seems to be a pattern here.

The other day when I was unearthing the oddball quilt blocks for their photo op I came across a stitchery that I'd done ages ago and forgotten about.  Obviously, I'd tucked it away until the right idea for it crossed my mind and lo and behold when I laid eyes on it the light came on  I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!
By the way, there is a linky party going on here.



 Here is some of the countryside enroute on Saturday.

That's Lake of the Prairies, which more or less straddles the MB-SK border. Have a creative week.
